7:01am
mariah is adding extra security on today, october 5th, 2012. savannah guthrie live from from nbc news, this is "today" with matt lauer and savannah guthrie live from studio 1a in rockefeller plaza. and good morning. welcome to "today" on a friday morning. i'm savannah guthrie. >> and i'm david gregory in for matt. the jobs report, all about the economy for this election, one of two remaining before election day. both campaign and voters will be keeping a close eye on what it means for the economy. >> big part of the politics right now, and you can betemit romney will be quick to pounce if it shows the same sluggish job growth we've seen in recent months. coming up, we'll talk to cnbc's jim cramer about what we can expect. also, remember that impatient driver we showed you on thursday caught on camera using the sidewalk to get around a crowded school bus. guess what? she got busted. now her mom is coming to her daughter's defense with an explanation you might find a
7:02am
little hard to believe. we will hear from her coming up. all right. you remember this guy, the prankster who posed as a delivery guy, accidentally dropping boxes of the much-anticipated new iphone in front of all those people waiting to get into the apple store. >> oh, no. >> there it goes. we'll meet him this morning and has quite the catalog of pranks, quite the repertoire. we want to start this morning with politics, the presidential race and mitt romney's newly revitalized campaign. nbc's peter alexander is in virginia this morning where both the president and governor will campaign today. peter, good morning to you. >> reporter: savannah, good morning to you. both campaigns came into this week circling two important dates on the calendar. first, wednesday's debate and then, second, today's jobs report, the latest update on the state of the nation's economy. you can expect mitt romney will be pouncing on the strong performance he had this week and the jobs reports numbers and we've learned a huge audience was watching, more than 62 million americans, first to tune
7:03am
into a presidential election since 1980 between president jimmy carter and ronald reagan. late thursday fireworks exploded in the sky, not on the debate stage. in virginia's heavily conservative shenandoah valuey. >> last night was an important night for the country. >> reporter: a confident, reinvigorated mitt romney alongside his running mate paul ryan tried to capitalize on the campaign's fresh momentum. >> i got a chance to ask the president questions that people want to ask around the country and you heard his answers. >> reporter: also thursday night, romney made news on a topic he wasn't asked about during the debate. appearing on fox news he repudiated his earlier comments seemingly writing off 47% of americans. >> now and then you're going to say something that doesn't come out right. in this case i said something that's just completely wrong, and i -- i absolutely believe, however, that my life has shown that i care about 100%.
7:04am
>> reporter: in wisconsin where the crowds swelled to more than 30,000 thursday, president obama arrived armed with new energy and attack lines against romney that were absent from wednesday's debate. all but calling his opponent a liar. >> governor romney may dance around his positions. he may do a tap dance and a two-step, but if you want to be president, then you owe the american people the truth. >> reporter: mr. obama's top advisers concedes the president needs to come back fighting the next two debates and find a sharper way to sell his message. we'll make adjustments, his top strategist said. president obama took aim at cutting funds to pbs, the home to big bird. that's less than $100 million a year, just a fraction of the overall federal budget. >> thank goodness somebody's finally cracking down on big bird! who knew that he was responsible for all these deficits? elmo's got to watch out. >> reporter: meanwhile, a past presidential nominee, former vice president al gore, who had his own debate struggles,
7:05am
offered this unusual explanation for mr. obama's uninspired performance, blaming the high altitude in denver. >> obama arrived in denver just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> -- and you only have a few hours to adjust -- >> that's interesting. >> -- i don't know. >> reporter: after hearing those comments and being asked about them last night mitt romney laughed al gore's answer off. after virginia, savannah, the president will head off to the battleground state of ohio and mitt romney goes to florida where he campaigns this weekend, the president ultimately ending up in california for a fund-raising event including a concert with john bone jovi, katy perry and stevie wonder. >> peter alexander from virginia, thank you. ed schultz is the host of "the ed show" on msnbc.
7:06am
>> good morning, savannah. >> you're a supporter of the president, your viewers are a supporter of the president. i think everybody in the political spectrum believed he slipped wednesday night. >> t c again. the margin of error, winning or losing in this campaign or this election is so tight right now, he just can't do it. i mean, there's been such an effort to suppress the vote. those people are now energized after what they saw the other night. the president's team has to bounce back, get on message, be aggressive. you know, talk radio across america people were disappointed. they were frustrated. they saw the perfect opening. i got a phone call from a lady yesterday in pennsylvania who said that, you know, when i'm sitting at home and i know the material better than the president, something owes wrong. >> it's a question of whether he fought back on substance. there's also the issue of style. people said he seemed checked out, not really present, not engaging. what do you think was going on? >> there were so many lies
7:07am
coming across the stage and so many inaccuracies it was hard to decide which one he wanted to protect first. the president's personality is he's bookish, likes to explain things. not somebody that will put things in a two or three-line thing. >> sounds like you're making excuses for the president. >> look back at president obama, the interviews he does, he like to get details. he's not had as many debates as mitt romney. romney knows where president obama is weak. woman any went in there from the opening answer the other night, he was aggressive. he was the guy in the board room, the corporate shark, knew how to get this audience done and was going to run over everybody. i think that might play to his disadvantage in the long run. >> let me ask you about the 47% remarks. mitt romney said on fox the other night he thinks they were completely wrong, those remarks. initially he stood by them. do you see a larger change in strategy in the romney campaign? >> it is mandatory. he can't go to ohio and explain
7:08am
the 47% without correcting that. this is definitely a redirect on the part of the campaign, and they are doing it at the right time. they are doing it -- this is actually the most momentum that mitt romney has had throughout this whole campaign. this is the perfect time to make that correction, but are people going to believe it? that's the question. >> very quickly, what do you think president obama does for the next debate? do you think he'll be more aggress sniff is there a danger of overcompensating now? >> he has to forget that. he has to go right at it. he has to be detailed, has to be aggressive. the thing that's so frustrating i think for liberals is they know that the president has accomplished a lot without any help from the republicans. that's a fact. that's not attacking your opponent. >> ed schultz, good to get your perspective this morning. >> thank you, savannah. >> see "the ed show" weeknights at 8:00 p.m. eastern on msnbc. >> both campaigns are waited with bated breath for the new jobs report, coming out this morning, a key indicator of where the economy is. cramer is host of cnbc's "mad
7:09am
money." >> good morning, dave. >> what do we expect, more anemic growth like we saw last month? >> yes. i don't expect a lot of jobs to be created. a lot of industries aren't hiring. >> why not? why is there still a lack of demand in the economy in. >> two reasons, one is that washington has this fiscal cliff. people are worried that the two parties can't come together. second, europe very weak and a lot of big manufacturers do export. don't have a lot of good business there. >> you hear so much, get to the fiscal cliff in a minute. still, the idea of the animal spirits, both on wall street and in corporate america being restrained. what are those spirits and why is that still the case? is it uncertainty about the election outcome in. >> yes, it really does matter. a lot of companies are happy to stockpe their cash. they have got big profits. they don't feel like expanding. why not wait a few months. why not hire now. hire in january. >> also interesting you have a lot of corporations acting like their own banks, right, simply holding on to cash because they are worried about the banking sector still. >> i think that most companies these days want to be self-financed. raised a lot of money. they have gone and issued bonds
7:10am
at a very low rate. they don't need to hire. they can just keep the cash. >> what's healthy right now, healthy sectors where you see growth? >> healthiest autos. a remarkable number of autos being sold, almost a boom. some strength in retail, health care. those are all hiring. >> when we look at the jobs numbers and see the unemployment rate maybe being static, maybe ticking up, what's a jobs number that you look at that would be a sign of a healthier economy of more remand? >> we need to see under 8% unemployment, need to see north of 120,000 jobs created. we'll know at 8:30. those are both stretch numbers. that would really help the president. i don't know if he can get him. >> talked about the fiscal cliff a minute ago. this is the end of the year, all these issues being kicked down the road here by congress and by the white house, so you have automatic spending cuts that would come into place. both wall street and i would imagine corporate america are deeply concerned about what the impact of that would be. >> when you speak to chief executive officers, i do a lot of that, they all say it. it's their excuse. now, maybe some of them should be hiring. everyone says listen, it's
7:11am
washington's fault. you've got to remove that roadblock. >> stock market through all of this has been performing very well, why? >> nothing to do with the country or unemployment. the stock market is doing well because the companies have a lot of cash. they are redistributing. they have got some prospects that maybe next year will be better, but right now they are doing better by not hiring instead of hiring. >> jim cramer, thanks so much. more on the jobs report tonight on "mad money" at 6:00 and 11:00 eastern on cnbc. i'll talk about the impact on the presidential race sunday on "meet the press." newt gingrich joins me and also my interview with arnold schwarzenegger. now over to natalie morales at the news desk with the morning's headlines. >> good morning, everyone. american airlines has been forced to cancel more flights this morning after it took 48 boeing 757s out of service to readdress the problem with those loose seats. nbc's tom costello covers aviation for us. tom, good morning. >> reporter: hi, natalie, good morning. american said it had to cancel 50 flights yesterday, another 44 today after it ordered those 48 planes to stay on the ground last night while it reexamines
7:12am
and then fixes the possible with those loose seats. the airline says its mechanics now believe that they have discovered the real problem that caused some seats to come loose, something called the seat lock plunger mechanism. really, it's a pin and lock system that got stuck in the unlocked% on some planes. american blames wear and tear and even spilled soda over the arir for that problem. they inspected and last night pulled those planes because of the pin and lock mechanism. it now is going to put them back into service very slowly. american hopes to have the repairs completed by saturday, but thousands of passengers will likely be inconvenienced again today. natalie. >> all right. tom costello, covering the story for us. thanks, tom. now to israel where a young american man opened fire in a southern resort town. nbc's martin fletcher has more from tel aviv. martin, good morning. >> reporter: hi, natalie, good morning. well, it seemed this was an argument that went sadly too
7:13am
far. a young american man in his 20s was in the hotel, the leonardo club hotel in eilat israel south. had an argument with a hotel employee that went too far. a security guard came over to try to break up the argument. the american man grabbed the guard's gun and started shooting and killed a man. he then ran away. imagine the panic in the hotel, jewish holiday, hotel full of tourists. the man hid in the hotel kitchen. the police came, a large contingent of police rushed to the hotel. there was a shootout of some kind and the police killed the young american man. we don't know the american's name. we don't know where he came from or what the argument was about, but, again, as i say, it didn't start out as any kind of planned attack. it was an argument that went out of control, and the police are saying nothing to do with terrorism, purely treating it as a criminal matter. natalie. >> thanks, martin. health officials are warning thousands of people across 23
7:14am
states could be at risk of contracting fungal meningitis, the rare and deadly strain of the disease that's been linked to the contaminated steroid injections given for back pain. at least five people have died from the outbreak and another 35 people across six states have been sickened. united nations is strongly condemning syria's shelling of a turkish border village that killed two women and three children. syrian officials say they are not seeking to escalate the cross-border violence with turkey. this as the u.s. expresses support for turkey's retaliation following the incident. a players lockout has put the hockey season on ice through october 24th. the nhl has cancelled the first two weeks of the regular season. players are locked out over a dispute over how to divvy up some $3 billion in revenue. nasa's curiosity rover is now shovel ready. starting on saturday, the rover will start scooping sand from mars and shake it up for hours to get rid of any residual dirt from our planet. then once it gets the right
7:15am
scoop of sand shaken, not stirred, it will pour it into a mobile lab and start analyzing it to see if there are traces of life. now 7:15 right now. back over to savannah, david and al. >> thank you so much. mr. roker is here. we're playing a little scrabble this morning. >> david gregory just busted us. we're both playing scrabble with each. >> words with friends. >> words with friends. >> this is work time. >>l is beating me 319-299. >> let's show you what's going on. >> wow. >> we've got a strong cold front coming in. ahead of this front. look at these temperatures, anywhere from 5temperatures. five to 20 degrees above normal. temperatures in the 80s. behind it, temperatures falling into the 40s and 30s and almost like blizzard conditions in northern minnesota. wet weather along the front will stretch up into the ohio river valley. beautiful weather in the pacific northwest upper 60s and low 70s.
7:16am
showers and thunderstorms in central and western florida. that's what's going on around the country, here's what's happening in your neck of the woods. >> a spectacular sunrise over the potomac. i'm tom kierein. live view from the nbc 4 city camera. 63 now at reagan national. elsewhere, in the 50s with a calm wind. 40s in the mountains where there's peak autumn color now. later today, climb sboog the low 80s. lots of sun and low humidity. increasing clouds >> and that's your latest weather. savannah? >> we have more this morning on some startling video we showed you on thursday, a driver using a sidewalk to get around a school bus picking up kids. nbc's katie tur is in cleveland, ohio with more. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, savannah. a bus driver for those kids shot a video stung to see, a woman and what appears to be total
7:17am
disregard for the law and the safety for those kids. a brazen maneuver caught on tape, without even pausing. watch as this driver pulls up on to the curb and drives down the sidewalk to avoid waiting behind a school bus for handicapped children. >> comes through here every morning, goes around the school bus every morning. >> reporter: not just goes around. in the video you can clearly she sheena hardin doesn't just illegally pass on the right but uses a pedestrian walkway as a detour, and this was all captured by the bus driver. mom lisa kelly saw it every day, too, as she waited for the bus to pick up her daughter. >> what if it was her in a wheelchair. >> reporter: hardin does this all the time, but they needed proofrks so the driver got out his cell phone camera and started rolling, getting all the proof needed.
7:18am
the next day a cleveland police officer was ready and waiting. >> all right. she has been caught. justice has been served. >> reporter: hardin appeared in court on tuesday and plead not guilty to the charges of not stopping for a school bus and reckless driving. hardin's mother trying to explain away her daughter's actions by arguing the bus takes too long and that what her daughter did wasn't all that dangerous. >> clearly the handicapped boy cannot run across the street. there's a factory across the street. >> reporter: look again. across the street is not a factory but a day care center, full of kids, who could have easily been in the wrong place at the wrong time. >> if we are h to evacuate the building, we would have to come through this door. this door here to come out of the building, and if she's coming up on the sidewalk, well, then, there's the danger right there. >> reporter: miss hardin is facing a $500 fine. she's due back in court later this month. we tried to talk to her a couple
7:19am
of times to ask her what she was thinking, what she was doing, but on the advice of her lawyer she declined to comment. savannah? >> katy tur in cleveland, thank you. >> switching gears back to the debate. the late night hosts are having fun with the presidential debates. jon stewart aiming most of his fire, oh, yeah, at president obama. >> there is no red america. there is no blue america. this is only the america that can't believe how bad this guy did in the debate. romney won with the sound up. >> you're entitled to a house and airplane but not your own facts. >> romney won with the sound off. dude. he's yelling at you. look up. look at! what are you writing at that's so important? you know, mr. president, everybody has parts of their jobs that they don't like so much, but they still have to do those things if they want to keep those jobs, and if you don't want to do it for
7:20am
yourself, think of your supporters. look what your performance did last night to one of them. >> i don't know what he was doing out there. i don't know how he let romney get away with the crap he threw out. what was he doing tonight? he was disarmed? where was obama tonight? >> you happy? mr. president, you broke chris matthews! >> he's still broken. you know, at one point, when he's writing, was he writing in his diary. >> playing words with friends. got a couple of letters. >> couldn't let that go. >> oh, my goodness. >> all right. >> coming up, the escalating feud on the set of "american idol." did nicki minaj really threaten to shoot mariah carey. >> what? >> or is it just hype for the show. we'll see, and the magazine cover featuring new more and yahoo! ceo marissa mayer. we'll

7:34am
emotionally but will continue the show. >> reporter: minaj responded and tweeted. she wrote ironically no camera or mike heard the gun comment. barbara walters didn't reach out from our team. i guess we're too dangerous. "idol" producers deny a gun threat was met. nicki minaj reached out and it was declined. >> from the very beginning with nicki minaj on set there was displeasure being said, mariah is supposed to be the star of the show, she's the jennifer lopez, wanted the attention on her and with the arrival of nicki minaj there are now two female divas on the panel. >> this it's a joke? think it's a joke? >> reporter: carey's husband nick cannon weighed in on the controversy that some say is nothing more than a pr stunt to boost sagging ratings. >> my wife and i, she's node move by any of the theatrics or
7:35am
pageantry. she's just there to do her job and help young people on this show that we've all grown to love. >> reporter: "american idol" is set to begin its 12th season in january, and producers surely hope fans will be watching to see who comes out on top, both on stage and at the judges' table. for today, jason kennedy, los angeles. >> alicia quarles is a correspondent for e news and donny deutsch is with deutch, inc. >> good morning. >> this threat that she was going to shoot her, is this real? >> maria saying that several people told her they overheard nicki saying this. she said i never said it. prove it. it wasn't on camera. not on audio. i didn't say it, but maria is getting more security, and has taken this threat as real but nobody ever heard it that's coming on camera. >> i'm blown away by the stunning importance of this incident. is this publicity? >> i'm actually repulsed by it.
7:36am
>> yeah. >> without getting too high and mighty and everybody knows i'm a pretty liberal guy. this is so disgusting. like what has happened to our culture that the only thing that can garner attention for a tv show is when one woman supposedly said to the other one i'm going to shoot the bitch. the reason "american idol" is over and done is the basic premise of oh, we're going to take an american and they will rise to the top is no longer interesting. we have to now make it about these idiotic judges fighting which shows me this genre is over. i'm disgusted. >> i don't think this genre is over. come on, you've got all these shows, "idol" was first. >> as a woman aren't you repulsed by this? >> sure. >> we're being very, very glib. this is no different than the housewives and everything else. >> this is different. >> why do we get turned on when people are going to kill each other or fight each other? >> something real in the industry with these women, is there a real feud?
7:37am
>> they worked together on a single. maria has been around for years and years and nicki made it in a male-dominated genre. putting these women together, there's going to be drama. >> all kidding aside as the employer, an employee overheard another employee saying that the person would be fired immediately. i was in the car -- literally, my bill daughter was in the car and a deejay was reporting this at 7:00 at night and say i guess this means "american idol" is getting good. thank god my daughter didn't hear it. this is a family show. >> that's the real question. it's taken the judges' tension and rivalry to a different level. >> this is just one incident. can't be indicative of the whole show. "idol" has been on year, had many judges. these two ladies are professional enough to get it together and make it about finding talent. >> all kidding aside. you're a dad. we kind of glibly go, but then
7:38am

understands that this is a period of time that women need to be with a baby. >> all this criticism could make the corner office look real good to mayer. >> mommies are hard on each other, very tough. she will get a lot of criticism for everything she does while being a mommy. >> reporter: now nbc news reached out to yahoo! for comments but did not hear back. mayer and her husband zachary bogue are also looking for help to name their son and that, too is generating controversy, reportedly sending out an e-mail to family and friends asking for suggestions. now in the business world, mayer will ultimately be judged on her ability to turn yahoo! around, and that's a big job. its stock price has fallen 40% in the last five years. >> there's a woman who has a lot on her plate. >> give her a break, right? >> give her a break, i'm with you on that one. anne thompson, thank you. >> still ahead, we'll meet a prankster who pulled a fast one on people waiting for the new iphone. coming up next, the unusual

8:23am
you do during pregnancy. why is that so important? >> it's so important for the health of these little ones, first of all, because what we put into our bodies helps set them up for the rest of their life. the first nine months of their life has an impact on them for the rest of their life and people like mole, a shiny example of a woman, you know works used the tools to go through her pregnancy and feel connected to her body, actually she did much better than most of them do. >> i was going to ask you, molly, what your experience was like. you have a little boy, 4 months old. >> his name is brooks. i did the whole nine months, everything you would focus on, our arms, your legs, your butt, your feet, everything. it's hard. i have to say it's overwhelming what your body goes through and as a woman who has just had a baby. i gained 50 pounds, and it was hard and even harder after. >> one of my favorite things i read about you because it's very real. people think you're molly sims.

bowed my way on to this segment. >> the raw pork belly. >> this is raw pork belly, can be cured or smoked and just smoked and then we call it bacon. >> and then you can call raw pork belly bacon, too, but what we think of as bacon is usually cured in a brine and smoked or just smoked. >> here we're looking at it slide. >> thick slices. here's some diced, what you might call minced. >> and pancetta is basically bacon, too. >> it's raw bacon that's cured with herbs really and spices. >> and the difference in quality is what? >> it's the same as it is with pork. sort of industrialially raised pork and more humanely and individually raised pigs, and these are not that we would ever plug anything, but these are some brands of sort of higher quality pork that make higher quality bacon. since bacon is getting more expensive. yeah, it's not a shortage actually, but it is going to get
8:45am
more expensive. meat in general is going to get more expensive. you might as well, i think, pay the extra money and look at no nitrates and from better pork and it tastes better. >> the best way to cook it? >> you know, i was writing the piece for "the times" and i liked doing it in the oven and broiler and on top of the stove. if you have a really big piece, can you grill it. >> i've done that. >> so great, but we tend to do the stove top thing. >> this is one of my favorites. at some hoity-toity event with my wife, and there were guys in tuxedoes and white gloves with plates of this bacon and every man was around it. >> well, this morning, there has never been so much buzz about a story. >> this is party bacon. >> you cook bacon slowly, and as it's finishing you sprinkle it with brown sugar and then whatever else you want, but we're using rosemarie here, so you get this, you know, it's --
8:46am
as if it weren't sticky and sweet enough it gets stickier and sweeter, and i would suggest trying that. >> i suggest that, too. >> and chicken, you're cooking chicken wrapped in bacon as well. talk to us about this recipe. >> well, this is -- that's what it is. chicken wrapped in bacon. so you take a chicken breast, a couple of slices of bacon. twist it around. you wrap the chicken breast. >> you wrap the chicken breast in bacon and then slide it into the ban. when the bacon is done, the chicken is done. >> that's pretty easy. >> this is smart, too, as you're cooking the chicken. brussel sprouts, not my favorite. my wife loves brussel sprouts but bacon is a nice complement, right? >> you take bacon and brussel sprouts, toss them together in

8:51am
knew you could sing, but were you too shy at first to kind of let that voice be heard? >> yeah. i think sometimes i can be confident and on it, and then other times i get too nervous, and i start to stutter and things like that, but when i was younger, i used to sing all the time, but i didn't used to sing in front of people, so now it's like i'm doing that all over again, except there's lots of people. >> explain something for those who don't know you that well. your fans call themselves brats. >> yes. >> why is that? >> i don't really know. i haven't really got an answer to that, but the thing that i love about it is that we're forming a group. as a kid growing up i was never within a group. i was always the strange girl in the corner, so now it's -- it's nice to be able to include people. >> now you're a huge star. cher lloyd singing "oat" for us this morning.
